LATHAM -- Staff Sgt. Elmore Stallworth from the Army Aviation Support Facility #3, refuels a U.S. Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet at the State headquarters flight facility on May 20.
The plane was piloted by Rear Admiral Dennis FitzPatrick, the commander of Strike Force Training Atlantic in Norfolk, Va., and Lt. Jason Duffie, a training squad certified instructor with Strike Fighter Squadron 106, stationed at Naval Air Station Oceana, Va. The two pilots were on a familiarization flight. Landing at the Latham facility offered training that included instrument approach and landing in unfamiliar locations. Once FitzPatrick completes his re-certification he will be qualified to land on an aircraft carrier.
